Harbour Lights

Harbour lights,

Welcome sailors home to

safety.

Waiting families wave and cheer,

Praise God for bringing them home safely yet again.

Berth secure.

arm in arm, sailors and kin

walk to lamp lit cottages

Home at last.

Mothers, children gather round,listen

to fathers tales of mountainous waves, howling winds,

Strange beasts in far off lands, even stranger men.

The children ,wide eyed, open mouthed wonder,

wait the greatest treat, father opening his old

sea treasure chest.
